What first inspired you to pursue music?

Music for me started in high school by just messing around with some friends at a home studio set up. It then progressed to an interest that i wanted to explore. Went to college and studied audio production and engineering and then evolved into an artist. 

What’s your creative process like?

It just depends on how im feeling or the mood. Typically, i like to record by myself and take my time. Usually when i hear a beat that i like, i can draw out melodies in my head pretty quickly. 

How has your music evolved over time?

As im still evolving, ive came a long way from where i started, from just starting to learn how to use my voice to my max potential, to lyrics and over all cadence and flows. Also learning how to show emotion and make more serious tracks that listeners and relate to vs the everyday trap music.

Talk about your inspiration behind “Wealth”

Wealth was a track i recorded pretty quickly and didn’t really think much of until relistening a couple times, I freestyle that song over a beat produced my ‘Prod. Molly’. I really just wanted to record something upbeat and hype that supporters could bop their heads to.

What about inspirations for the music video?

The video was supposed to be kind of a run and gun just all around fun video. Didn’t wanna over do it with a crazy video, because the song kinda speaks for its self.

What was your experience like shooting the music video?

Working with Keaton Jones and his team was a blast, very smooth day and i can say, that wealth isnt the only music video we shot that day.

What is up next for you artistically?

I just wanna build and keep this momentum and make something happen. Try my hardest and keep growing, show people what I’m capable of.

Overall, it’s time to get hip to Mannydior, a rising artist with an infectious, memorable sound. If his latest offering “Wealth” is any indication, there’s lots to be excited about with this versatile newcomer.

Today the visionary artist and filmmaker Mikahl Anthony launches the hotly anticipated release of the multi-personnel driven ‘MUSE’ album with the precursor donut. ‘Space Blue’ and ‘Deep Ain’t It’ typify the breadth of style and sound to be found on the forthcoming long player.

 This one hits a nostalgic vibe with its Sun Ra grounding, modern, spacey undertones, Marvin Gaye-inspired musicality, Lil Wayne textures, soothing qualities of Erykah Badu, and throws in a bit of André 3000 swagger.   It serves as a profound reflection on deep connections, whether through intentional meetings or chance encounters. "Space Blue/Deep Ain't It" is a sonic masterpiece that transcends conventional expectations, leaving listeners in awe of its depth and complexity. This enigmatic musician, lets the music take centre stage, revealing a kaleidoscopic tapestry of sound across soulful hip hop, funk, jazz, and afrobeat spectrums.

 “Space Blue” is Produced by Nico “Donnie Trumpet” Segal - Grammy Award recipient (Producer) ~ Coloring Book 2016, a Grammy Award nominee (Producer) ~ ‘Ultralight Beam’ - (Kanye West) and Performing Artist with (Frank Ocean Live Tour) 2016.

 A highly sought-after multidisciplinary artist... but who is he??? Hailing from the West side of St. Louis, Missouri, Mikahl Anthony’s sonic roots are spread far across the global Alt-Soul/Hip-Hop scene.

All we know is that he collaborated on a project with Via Rosa (of the soulful electro Duo Drama) on The Great Depression EP. He also was Co-Curator / Featured Artist / Producer on Jean Deaux’s EP - Outer Body.

With a mantra that delves into self-reflection with storytelling, Mikahl's 'M.U.S.E' encapsulates a dual meaning acronym (1. Ms. Using Sensual Energy & 2. Making Use of Seclusion Everyday).

Accompanied by breath-taking, self-directed film pieces, ‘MUSE’ is more than just sonic; it's an immersive audio/visual experience that places storytelling at its core.

Kupid Impresses With New Single "Shot To Da Head"


Fueled by his flair for fashion and music, Kupid entered the scene of Hip-Hop in 2020, at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. A senior at Loyola University in New Orleans, Kupid soars above most hip-hop artists of his generation. From the age of 4, his love for music began, centering around mastering the acoustic guitar, and playing the keyboard by ear. After that, his affinity for playing instruments took flight. He has played the electric guitar and struck many a beat on the full drum set in middle school. After that, Kupid’s arrow fell front and center on the drumline in high school. It was during this time that his love for rap music materialized.

Kupid entered college with the intent to focus on Music Production, but changed course along the way, acknowledging his preference for taking center stage. Targeting a 2024 graduation with a Bachelor of Science in Music Industry Studies, he is an accomplished artist and musician, exuding fashion finesse.

Initially releasing under the moniker “Drew$kii” Kupid dropped his first EP “Ultraviolet” in 2021 and extended his reach via collaborations with various other industry artists. Since then, he has rebranded his persona and is known to the world of Hip-Hop as “Kupid”. His most recent and notable collabs include: “Dreads Hang” on “4 The Culture Vol. 1: Maroon Edition” album released in 2023 by Loyola New Orleans’ Hip-Hop and R&B cohort. 

Kupid has now aimed his target at releasing his debut single “OK Wait”, which is part of a larger project.

Born Andrew but known as “Drew” Carnakie-Baker in Lawrenceville, Georgia, Kupid spent every summer and holiday season visiting extended family in New York City. This is probably why his fans might hear a mixture of “The South meets Northen exposure” in lyrical experiences told through rap.

Fun Fact: While marching to the beat of his own drums in high school Kupid winged becoming a County Qualifier twice and a State Qualifier once in breaststroke representing his school’s swim team.
